Hillary Clinton Is The Right Choice For New York
Recently, I was lucky enough to welcome Hillary Clinton back to the Albany area at a rally in Cohoes, NY.
I was so excited to introduce Hillary at the event, which was just a few miles from where I grew up.
I was also honored to join Bill Clinton as we traveled throughout the state, campaigning for Hillary.
And then in New York City at a Women For Hillary rally, I joined Hillary and so many other amazing women to get out the vote.
I have been working tirelessly to elect Hillary Clinton to be our next President because I believe she is the right person to lead our nation and the most qualified person for the job.
And for me, Hillary has been an incredible mentor and source of inspiration.
I was just a young lawyer in New York City when Hillary made her famous speech in Beijing, where she said:
“human rights are women’s rights and women’s rights are human rights once and for all”
That was a life-changing moment for me.
I always cared about making the world a better place, but it wasn’t until I watched her give that speech that I knew I had to follow Hillary and get off the sidelines.
When I decided to run for office, she gave me guidance, and she and President Clinton even campaigned for me. I was so inspired by her service as my Senator and could not have been more proud to follow in her footsteps to serve New York in the U.S. Senate.
Just look what Hillary has done throughout her career.
When Hillary finished law school, she could have gone anywhere. She could have worked at the fanciest law firm in the country. But no, she went to work for the Children’s Defense Fund, and fought for children with disabilities.
As First Lady of the United States, Hillary fought for millions of Americans who were sick and had no access to health insurance.
As Senator, she fought for our 9/11 first responders, those men and women who raced up the towers when everyone was coming down. And she fought to make sure THEY would have healthcare.
And as Secretary of State, Hillary never stopped fighting for human rights and equal rights at every corner of the earth.
Hillary has spent her entire life fighting for everyone else. So now it’s time to fight for her.
I hope you’ll join me by supporting her at the ballot box today. Polls close at 9pm ET. Be sure to make your voice heard!
